I want to create a recordset that contains only a single result from a larger recordset, how can I do this?

I have a recursive algorithm that calls itself many times, passing a single record in, and getting a new set of results where one entry will be used in the next step and then passed on again. I worry that I'll fill my memory with hundreds of large datasets, some with 10k+ results, where I only ever want to use one of them. How can I store only recordset.row(x)? I know I can .moveFirst but the other records are still stored in the background aren't they?

Thanks
